Dunwoody received nearly $5.6 million in CARES funds from DeKalb County, which shared roughly a fourth of its $125 million with its dozen cities. The federal funds have to be used by Dec. 10 or else they return to the county.
Last month, the city allocated most of its CARES funds. It budgeted about $1 million for economic support efforts, roughly $1.25 million for public health efforts and $500,000 for payroll expenses.
The remaining $2.8 million was not specifically allocated, but city leaders said they plan to use it for further economic support efforts if the need is there.
